This used to be one of my favourite places on the seaside in Vilanova, but unfortunately the last 2-3 times both the service and the quality of food have not been up to standard. There are lots of alternatives (right next to the place are 2),but it's a pity anyway. I will not return - at least for a while.

After waiting for more than one hour, they asked what we want. Nobody explains anything, and when we apply for drinks, we were completely ignored. I would not repeat for sure.

Good seafood and tapas at good price. Nice terrace to have a time after dinner. Just mention the poor service level, not very profesional.

cutting to the point, the food is great, the service is amazing, and the prices are valid. I went here multiples times during my stay in Vilanova because it quickly felt "homey" and familiar. The people are extremely nice and most importantly, the food is great! I recommend everything! I went for lunch, dinner, and just drinks. It's a perfect... More

Searching the Passeig Maritim for a Catalan seafood dish at 10pm in the middle of the week during May ironically is no easy undertaking, but this is where we ended up anyway. Only one other table had a group of local customers, so service was very good and very friendly. We ordered a bottle of Somiatruites, a pleasant young white... More

Good Friday in vilanova . The restaurant was busy decided to give it a go. Sat for 5 mins waiting for a waiter should have left then. However after eventually getting drinks we then needed menus which took another 10 mins and then 10 mins before anyone came to take an order. Then the real wait began 50 minutes before... More

The Café del Mar is one of my usual places. I really like the food and the setting. Service is nice and prices are very reasonable. All the tapas are quite good - rations are largish, so be careful what you order.
